I found this one very difficult when my boyfriend stays with me, and he does it a lot recently. I will try do something different, go to bed before 10. I heard from a yoga teacher that 10pm is the time when our bodies are ready to rest. If we stay up longer, we would feel one more rush of energy, but this one’s purpose is to help with detoxification of our bodies, not to wake us up. I’ll see how it goes. 10 months ago

I woke up 5 min before time. It happens a lot, when I have a strong intention to wake up at certain time. I wonder how it works. It feels like magic.
Okay, I did what I planed – woke up and then listen to my motivational audio. I’m a bit tired – didn’t sleep enough last night. Fortunately it doesn’t happen very often, and I have some “sleep credit” from last nigh (and part of the day). Thought about swimming in the ocean right in the morning, but somehow got discouraged by cold and wind. Hmm, I think that if I really want to do such a thing, then I will have to make a goal of it, as it doesn’t come easily in the morning. 10 months ago
That’s the time I want to wake up. Then it would probably be good and advantageous to listen to my motivational audio. would be good prepare it beforehand. I will help me to get up and feel good about starting the day.
I guess I will do that for a week and then I’ll make it half an hour earlier. 10 months ago
How I did it: I'm naturally a night person, so waking up early in the morning is incredibly difficult for me... However, despite fighting with myself every day, I love getting up early because it means that I have a full day ahead of me.
The only way I was able to achieve this goal consistently was due to the fact that I had to get up early in the morning for work, and as a result, I became used to the routine and found that I was able to wake up at the same time everyday throughout the entire week right to the weekend.

How I did it: I've had problems getting up in the morning for years. I never knew anyone with my problem in real life, but there were plenty of people on the internet. So anyway, long story short I started exercising and practicing mindfullness meditation, which helped tremendusly with improving my lifestyle and well-being, but I still couldn't get up when I wanted. I found this 'Sonic Boom' alarm clock on the internet, which has a bed shaker that you put under your pillow. It worked, I now have the rule that I'm not aloud to switch it off until I get up.

How I did it: Getting up early in the morning might be hard at first, but it's totally worth it. I'm a college student, and I like getting up around 7:00 because I have time to shower, get ready, do some reading, and eat breakfast without being in a rush before class.
The best thing to do? Just start getting up at the time you would like to. The first five to ten days (depending on how much earlier you're getting up then normal) are going to be an adjustment period. You will probably be tired for awhile, but just keep with it.
Try to start laying down in bed an hour earlier then you normally do, and then force yourself to get up in the morning. Try not to take naps. Your bedtime will adjust- you'll notice you'll start getting tired earlier. Read how I did it… 3 years ago
But only because I have to. I’m awake between 7-7:30am to get to work, however, I find myself rushing to get ready most mornings and not really having any time to myself.
The next step to this goal would be to get up even earlier, just so that my mornings can be more relaxed. 2 years ago
